They found that: 70 percent of churchgoing high schoolers report having serious doubts about faith. Less than […]

Rays of Hope

By Matthew Slama I was recently thinking about how we view God and how he interacts with us in this world. I was also reflecting about the verse about us being light unto the world. As I reflected, I searched for an illustration to ground this Biblical concept. I think I found it. The lamp […]

Atheism: The Old Vs. the New

By J. Brian Huffling Introduction Ever since humans have walked the earth, they have been plagued with many and various questions.

Sickness and the Annihilator

Argumentos que un cristiano no debe usar para defender su fe: el aire no lo puedes ver, pero lo sientes

Por Carlos E. Rodríguez ¡Dios les bendiga! Mi interés en este blog es proporcionar, para el cristiano, herramientas para defender su fe cristiana. Aunque, también quiero hacerle ver al ateo lo errada que está su cosmovisión, y que la existencia de Dios puede ser probada más allá de toda duda razonable. Hace unos meses desarrollé […]
